Another Point of View from an Australian Global Warming Scientist.
“Government is like fire, a handy servant but a dangerous master.” George Washington
From the Australian:
“The world has spent $50 billion on global warming since 1990, and we have not found any actual evidence that carbon emissions cause global warming. Evidence consists of observations made by someone at some time that supports the idea that carbon emissions cause global warming. Computer models and theoretical calculations are not evidence, they are just theory”,
stated by Dr. David Evans former Scientist, Austrialian Greenhouse office.
This was the Aussie who wrote the carbon accounting model that measures Australia’s compliance with the Kyoto Protocol.
“I DEVOTED six years to carbon accounting, building models for the Australian Greenhouse Office. I am the rocket scientist who wrote the carbon accounting model (FullCAM) that measures Australia’s compliance with the Kyoto Protocol, in the land use change and forestry sector.”
FullCAM models carbon flows in plants, mulch, debris, soils and agricultural products, using inputs such as climate data, plant physiology and satellite data. “I’ve been following the global warming debate closely for years. When I started that job in 1999 the evidence that carbon emissions caused global warming seemed pretty good: CO2 is a greenhouse gas, the old ice core data, no other suspects.”
Dr. David Evans used to be a scientist in the Australian Greenhouse Office. He spent six years with the Australian government building models about the influence of carbon emissions on our atmosphere.

Dr. Evans Reverses His Position on CO2 and Global Warming
Today, Dr. Evans has revered his position on CO2 causing global warming since he started working in the office in 1999, “new evidence has seriously weakened the case that carbon emissions are the main cause of global warming.” By the year 2007, the evidence is conclusive: carbon played only a minor role in recent global warming and was not the main cause.
1. The greenhouse signature is missing. We have been looking and measuring for years, and cannot find it.
2. There is no evidence to support the idea that carbon emissions cause significant global warming.
3. The satellites that measure the world’s temperature all say that the warming trend ended in 2001, and that the temperature has dropped about 0.6C in the past year (to the temperature of 1980).
4. The new ice cores show that in the past six global warmings over the past half a million years, the temperature rises occurred on average 800 years before the accompanying rise in atmospheric carbon. Which says something important about which was cause and which was effect.
Keeping that last point in mind, Al Gore still preaches in his movie that the ice cores are the sole reason for believing that carbon emissions cause global warming. Dr. Evans says, “In any other political context our cynical and experienced press corps would surely have called this dishonest and widely questioned the politician’s assertion.”

What does Dr. Evans think will happen next in Australia?
The Australian economy may be wrecked to reduce carbon emissions. What is going to happen over the next decade as global temperatures continue not to rise? “The Labor Government is about to deliberately wreck the economy in order to reduce carbon emissions. If the reasons later turn out to be bogus, the electorate is not going to re-elect a Labor government for a long time. When it comes to light that the carbon scare was known to be bogus in 2008, the ALP is going to be regarded as criminally negligent or ideologically stupid for not having seen through it. And if the Liberals support the general thrust of their actions, they will be seen likewise.”
